Goodwill of the Finger Lakes and the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABV), a mission program of Goodwill of the Finger Lakes, are gearing up to once again ROC the Day and they want to know: Are you ready?
This year, on Tuesday, November 27 you can ROC the Day and celebrate #GivingTuesday with an online gift in support of the programs and services Goodwill and ABVI provide to families, children, and individuals throughout the greater Rochester area.
“GivingTuesday is a nationwide day of giving. However, when you ROC the Day for Goodwill and ABVI, you are supporting local non-profits that do good work right here in our community,” says Marlisa Post, Annual Giving Manager, and perennial ROCstar at Goodwill of the Finger Lakes.
So how does one become a ROC the Day ROCstar?
“It’s simple,” says Post. “Choose. Give. Matter.”
